Lololol, they were all so mean to each other in that thread. I stopped checking it after a while because of it.

Come on, that's a little much. They didn't say "By Tuesday". Early in the week is nebulous enough to allow for Wednesday. Really, as long as it's this week I don't think it's a big deal.

I think you're a cool dude Noodley, but I respectfully disagree.

Breakdown of the work week:

Early- Monday/Tuesday
Mid-Wednesday/Thursday AM
Late-Thursday PM/Friday

Wednesday is not early especially when they made it sound as if the decisions were made "late last week" and the notifications were this week.

Having said that, I still like my usage of bush league. Just sayin'

Yea. When they sent the "early next week" email, I told myself to assume Wednesday-Friday. But I can't help but be disappointed each day all the same. I was admitted back in early Feb., right when they basically quit giving $ with acceptances. ASW, amongst other things, sealed my love of the school and area. But the COA has to be competitive.

Not to mention that several deposit deadlines have passed and lots more are creeping up. Freaks me out. :shock:


You got into Penn right? Are you basically set on UVA at this point, or are you deciding between certain schools?

Yeah, I got into Penn w $ and Cornell w 120k. I really like UVA and want to be set on them but I can't without $ info. Hoping today brings (good) news!

What about you?

From what we have seen though, the people actually GETTING freed up money are NEW admits. FWIW.


Didn't want to cause a stir earlier, but I'm not a new admit and I already heard back this week (monday) and received an increase on an existing scholarship. So some have already gone out at least.

My biggest scholarships were at Michigan and Cornell, but I went to the Michigan ASW and couldn't see myself spending 3 years there. Although I've never been to Ithaca I suspect I wouldn't like it either. I have $$ at Penn and waiting on UVA, so it's definitely between those two. I'm riding all the CCN waitlists but I doubt that any of them would offer me anything close to Penn or UVA in scholarships, so I've pretty much ruled them out.

EDIT: Also I hated how UVA and Penn had ASW's at the same time forcing us to choose one over the other. I went with the one that gave me money though. Hoping UVA will give me $$ to give me a reason to visit Charlottesville soon.

I think we can give up waiting. We got trolled. If we haven't heard by now, then it's probably safe to assume we ain't gettin' mo.

Most likely work for a year or two and save up dat cash. Not a fan of six figure debt.

Not really a detail, but did you have to call them or did they call/e-mail you today?

Also I think even if we get nothing, they are supposed to tell us. That's how I read their email. Then again, they seem to have different interpretations of the meaning of words and phrases than the general population (it's now midweek UVA).
